On the Road and off
Merisi goes America

Efficient use
of infrastructure

Not so sure
this will ever move again

Take me home
in style

Take a break!

Can't wait to hear
what my friend Simon Cotter
thinks of these cars! :-)


  1. But most important --are you coming to New York?
    Please advise soonest!

  2. A far cry from the glory of Vienna...ahem

  3. Oh, I do SO agree with Parisbreakfasts!! Hope you're having a great time though!!

  4. Safe travels, Merisi! Love the last picture especially!

  5. I follow your blog because of Vienna..I miss your post about your beautiful city :D

  6. When I saw the doughnuts a few posts ago I was going to ask if you were on my side of the Atlantic...guess I missed your title "Merisi Goes America"...

  7. Hey, You've visited where I was born and raised. Nice shots!

    May I share with you what's been keeping me from reading and commenting on blogs lately?

    "This Restless Life: a study of Central Coast California parks through photography, interpretive collage and stories" is a book project of which I'm in the midst. If you have the time and the inclination, would you take a look at my short video at to learn more about the project? If you like the project, would you share it with your network of friends and family? Thank you sincerely. (I have a link to the video at the top of my blog page too.)

  8. Merisi, it would take a long email to tell you about what I know about the areas you've visited. Think that you know I grew up in Virginia, but a past professional role led me to know lots and lots about all sorts of North Carolina locations large and small.

    Seeing your photographic sampling of light on this side of the ocean really does emphasize your magic with the camera. It's all in the eye!


  9. I'm really enjoying your American pictures - you're obviously having a great trip!

  10. Hallo Merisi! thanks for dropping by my humble blog... i hope you will be back in Vienna soon...

  11. What's Eating Gilbert Grape.
    Somehow this movie popped into my brain when I saw these photos.

  12. Lots of "not so sure it will ever move again" along the road in the country. We used to say we could tell how long someone had lived there based on the number of abandoned lawn mowers in their yard :)

    Enjoy your trip and thanks for taking us along. It is indeed a long way from Vienna.

  13. So enjoying your road trip through a different landscape! These photos are so wonderfully atmospheric - they seem to capture a different era, a different pace of life.
    Golly, you are getting around!

  14. Wonderful photos of quaint towns and rural atmosphere.
    Glad you are in the US for a visit. Wish you were coming to the West Coast. It would be fun to meet.

  15. The last 2 shots make me think about "Bagdad Café" ...!
    The sight of them gives out the whole atmosphere ... I can hear Jevetta Steele sing "Calling you" ... and I can expect you to turn out any moment as the new Jasmin...!!!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
